Laproscopic Management of Esophageal Duplication Cysts Presenting in Adults

We report a case of oesophageal duplication cysts in adult. This case report is presented mainly to describe that these predominantly congenital lesions may be symptomatic in adults and if so, must be treated expediously by surgical resection to prevent further complications.
